South Australia Election 2006 : Questionnaire


Welcome to INsight - our election panel for the South Australian election. The purpose of this project is to give both you and us insight into what is really happening. Most reporting tends to focus on parties, politicians and candidates, but neglects the real decision makers - you. By talking to thousands of voters via surveys and some focus groups we can report the campaign in ways that are relevant to you.

If you want to be part of our panel, please complete the following questions as accurately as possible and click the "submit" button. If you have already filled out the questionnaire and want to view our coverage of the election, click here.
